About

Classic Films. Iconic Locations. Unique Experiences.

Bristol Film Festival is a unique festival concept that screens classic films in iconic locations around Bristol.

Formed in 2015 by Owen Franklin, the idea was born out of wanting to provide an alternative experience for film lovers. We wanted to move away from the typical cinema experience and provide something immersive, so that our audiences walk away from our events having experienced something a little bit different.

We run throughout the year, with a programme of events that tries to offer something for everybody. Whether you’re a horror fan, or a rom-com lover, or can’t get enough of Vintage Hollywood, take a look at our ‘What’s On’ page to see our upcoming events.

Take a look at our strands of programming, our fantastic locations or watch the video below for an overview – we look forward to welcoming you to an event soon.
